Share nature with children! On weekday mornings in the spring and fall, volunteer guides lead nature discovery activities, tell stories, and play games while taking small groups of K-6th graders on school nature walks through the Whilamut Natural Area of Alton Baker Park.
No experience is necessary; training covers everything from natural history to storytelling to teaching techniques. Guides commit to leading one walk per week (two-three hours) for one season at a time. Training happens in March-April and September. Check out our Overview of the program and our spring 2020 guide training calendar. Come to our Spring Volunteer Information Session on March 18, from 6-7:30 at our Yurt in Alton Baker Park to learn more. (Note: As of March 20th, our Spring Guide Training is postponed until further notice. If you are interested in participating once we reschedule, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know. Thanks!
